The former brewery grounds of Carlsberg have been turned into a breeding ground for creatives with a dance studios, art ateliers, start-up incubators and performance spaces. Like the talent it nurses, the area is still more of a work in progress than a finished product, but it’s rapidly becoming a must-visit stop on the art route with some of Copenhagen’s gallery heavy weights having moved in.

Plenty of events take place on the grounds, but at other times make a beeline for Garagerne on Ny Carlsberg Vej 68, where five galleries have bundled together in the huge 2,000 square meter former garage to form a contemporary art powerhouse, of which Galleri Nicolai Wallner and Galleri Nils Stærk in particular are worth checking out.
